Swindon players put in charge of team


Swindon Town have announced that midfielder Tommy Miller and defender Darren Ward will take temporary charge of the club after Paolo Di Canio stood down as manager on Monday.

Fabrizio Piccareta was caretaker for Tuesday's 3-1 win over Tranmere, but said afterwards that he and his backroom staff would resign the next day.

Ward signed for the club permanently in January, having spent the first half of the season on loan from Millwall, while fellow 34-year-old Miller signed in the summer from Huddersfield.
